Artist Gives Dolls Some Serious Make-Under To Look Like Real-Life Female Heroes

It's a game-changer, really.

You'll have to agree that Bratz dolls look nothing like regular women. Tons of eye makeup and questionably sexualized appearances do not necessarily send the positive message to girls playing with them. But one artist wants to change just that.

Wendy Tsao, from Vancouver, started a project called Mighty Dolls. Yep, you got it. The artist gives Bratz dolls major make-unders to turn them into real-life power ladies.

"The dolls we find in toy stores today are often licensed Disney characters or the heroines of Hollywood blockbuster movies that capitalize on the pull of fantasy, fictional characters to young consumers," Tsao explained on Bored Panda, talking about her inspiration for the project. "But there are real-life people who are heroes, too, with inspiring stories of courage, intelligence, strength and uniqueness."

What a truly beautiful way to inspire little girls. Scroll down to see for yourself.
